Elif Akinci is native born from the international urban center of Istanbul, Turkey. She graduated at the top of her class, from the prestigious Bilkent University in Turkey’s capital city of Ankara securing a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. Realizing her dream, she moved to New York City in 2004 and secured a position with the international luxury hotel chain. Elif quickly rose to Reservations Manager and finally Revenue Manager at their prestigious hotel for seven years.

Using her intuitive people and hospitality skills, along with her love of New York City, she naturally pivoted to focus on real estate. She brings with her extensive communication skills, attention to detail, blended with expert knowledge of New York City as a longtime resident of the Midtown West & Upper West Side. Her multicultural and fluent language skills coupled with the love of fine arts, music and dance lead Elif to easily mix with a diverse slice of the community.

Elif's motto is: "Go above and beyond the clienteles needs, passionate that each client is unique, with the ultimate goal to find their dream home". Elif specializes in helping first time home buyers particularly those with specific details or unique needs like desirable pet-friendly environments. She puts the same energy and detail into buying or selling your home as she would for her own family home.

Elif's passion additionally lies with her husband and beloved Buddy, their eight-year-old golden retriever. That passion extends as an avid equestrian and an amateur jumper. A meeting of the minds, her stubborn partner Dublin reminds Elif “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit “Aristotle. Successfully able to charm the 1500-pound stallion, she has all confidence to match the most discerning of clientele to that elusive...home of their dreams.

Elif is huge believer in giving back and supporting the community. 10% of her income goes to charitable organization whichever her client holds closest to their heart.
